I have used this lens almost exclusively since I got it. I find that its sharpness is more than acceptable at all f-stops, all of the respective apertures have their creative uses.

I snapped a pic of my domke f-2 that was about 6" in front of me. The depth of field, DOF, is very thin, razor thin, actually.
I really like it and find that I can experiment with it and achieve postive results.

If you have some shots with fast lenses that display this nifty thin DOF, feel free to post them. ;)

So what kind of pictures do you take mostly with it?

I have been using it for landscape shots and indoor photography. I am going to Enchanted Rock, a Texas State park, tomorrow to photograph with it.

Like L fever, there's also "fast lens" fever. Once you get once fast prime, you can't stop... :D

Do you think you're going to be shooting mostly with primes now?
